Dear Milton Friends, Neighbors and Citizens,
In an effort to keep you updated on happenings around Milton, this release highlights some key meetings and topics that may be of interest to you.
I am pleased to announce the Great American Clean-up Day of Service scheduled for Saturday, April 25th. This project, spearheaded by Milton Grows Green and the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, is part of two national clean-up programs, "The Great American Cleanup" and "Day of Service." It will be a terrific day of community service and citizen camaraderie as we all come together to spruce up the 202 acres of the Birmingham Parkland. Many local churches, boy scouts, girl scouts, civic organizations and more are planning to join in for this community wide volunteer park clean up event. Scroll down for details.

Bulky Trash Day - On April 18 from 8a.m. - 2p.m., there is an opportunity for Milton residents to take large items for recycling that otherwise cannot be donated. The location for drop-off of such items is just around the corner from the Roswell Recycling Center at 1790 Hembree Rd. This is an amnesty day so there is no charge for Milton, Alpharetta and Roswell residents.
It is an honor to represent you. Please let me know if I can be of assistance to you. Julie Zahner Bailey
